The pick of festival poetry events in Edinburgh this week

Thursday 25 August 2011

There may be rain and a nip of autumn chill in the morning air - but the festival season is still in full swing and there is more poetry to look forward to all around the city. Here are some highlights…The School of Poets is holding its well-known Courtyard Readings outside the Scottish Poetry Library every day at 2pm (until Saturday 27th)…At the Fruitmarket Gallery on Thursday 25th, meet the Gutter Poets, who all appear in the magazine of that name. The line up includes StAnza’s own Jim Carruth, Colin Herd and Graham Fulton….Roll up to Charlotte Square on Saturday 27th to hear Robert Bringhurst and David Harsent at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
